Project Area:

In many engineering applications, for example in medical imaging and non-destructive testing, a common problem is to find the shape of an unknown obstacle using information from the influence that the obstacle has on propagating waves. Such a type of problem also occurs in fluid dynamics where objects submerged in water are to be detected. A similar model can be applied when the size and shape of particles in liquid suspensions and aerosols are to be determined from light scattered by the particles. These situations can be mathematically modelled as a so-called inverse scattering problem. It is a highly challenging problem from both computational and theoretical aspects, since it is ill-posed, i.e. sensitive to errors in the data, and non-linear.
